Eggnog ice cream

We are thinking of making this recipe tonight:
Eggnog Ice Cream Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network
Just one question, in the directions it says to 'gradually temper the hot mixture into the egg and sugar mixture.'
What exactly does this mean?

Without looking at the actual recipe, in most cases, it means that the egg mixture is added to the other "hot" mixture gradually and, sometimes in small portions, and when the warmed mixture is a bit cooled. What you DO NOT want is to have the eggs scramble. It's a gentle way of incorporating eggs into a warm mixture.

OK thanks, when I looked it up it just said to mix gradually but I figured there was more to it than that!
Looks like the recipe may be trickier than I thought, as after you temper it in you have to re-heat the entire mixture to 160 before letting it cool in the fridge to 40, then putting it in the ice cream maker.

Not too much alcohol or the ice cream won't freeze.

It calls for 3oz of bourbon. As Susan said, too much and it won't freeze so I wouldn't add more than that.
